The MET Office has issued an Amber Extreme heat warning for this week, with temperatures in the south east expected to reach in excess of 33C.
We will follow local and national guidance about keeping pupils safe and well during severe hot weather and review our arrangements for breaktimes, PE lessons and other outdoor activities, as each day unfolds.
EYFS sports day – this will now take place on Friday July 15th at 9am , to avoid taking pupils out in the afternoon sun.
KS1 sports day – we intend for this to go ahead tomorrow morning (July 12th at 9.15am) as we should be finished by 10.15am, before the temperatures start to rise significantly. We will review the situation first thing and make any necessary changes, updating families accordingly.
Please ensure that you:
- apply sun cream to your child before they arrive at school
- send your child in with a sun hat/cap
- provide your child with a refillable water bottle
